Student Programming

 

MARC's bullying & cyberbullying prevention programs for K-12 students are unique in that most services are delivered by trained graduate and undergraduate students from Bridgewater State University, in a high-status peer model.  All our students are closely supervised by MARC faculty.

We offer our anti-bullying programs to all K-12 schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts*. Currently, the program is grant-supported and participating schools located within about 45-60 minutes of BSU do not have to pay for it, although they are asked to cooperate with the research. 

*Student Services may still be available for Out of State or Country schools. Please inquire using our Request Form
